I read this fake news about people who still use internet explorer are dumb. It made me realized that a lot of offices do use Internet Explorer. I always wonder why companies still use IE while there are so many better alternatives. In my opinion maybe because some companies can only use that because its a legacy-friendly.

In the corporate environment you have more control over IE in Active Directory and can limit people to what they can access via Group Policy and Domain Management tools.

Oh I did not know that IE is more business-friendly than others. I always thought you can make restrictions on other browsers. Thanks for another useful info.

Yeah, since it's built-into Windows, it's often more "supported" than third-party browsers (although most of them are superior, in my opinion) and can be controlled by the network administrator.

Also, it's what most people are used to, and we all know how resistant to change we humans can be. :lol:
